Michael Garvin and his brother John recently had a tiff during tea time, when Chef Michael made John a shepherd's pie.
But John, you see, insisted that a layer of tomatoes should go atop the fluffy mashed potatoes and meat of the traditional shepherd's pie.
Chef Michael didn't take the suggestion too kindly. He grabbed a shovel and smacked his brother on the head, according to the Telegraph newspaper.
Then John threatened to bomb his brother's apartment, which got him arrested.
